SELF-ACTUATING FLOW REGULATORS TYPE ZSN8

APPLICATION AREA:
Regulators ZSN8 are used to control preset pressure in process installations. Regulators are applied in heating
systems, in industrial processes with cold and hot water, steam, air and non-ammable gases. Using with other
media subject to consulting with manufacturer.

DESIGN:
Regulator comprises two main units: valve (01) and actuator (02).
Regulator valve single-ported with balanced plug, and ow rate preset
value adjuster in the form of gradually adjusted packing gland. Flanged
connections of valve body with valve face as per
PN-EN 1092-1:2006 and PN-EN 1092-2:1999 for PN10; 16; 25; 40
PN-EN 1759-1:2005 for CL150; CL300.
Body length as per:
PN-EN 60534-3-1:2000 - Series 1 for PN10; 16; 25; 40;
Series 37 for CL150; Series 38 for CL300
Diaphragm actuator (diaphragm effective area 160 cm2), with bolted
housing and spring allowing to achieve preset pressure drop on adjuster
packing gland of 20 [kPa] or 50 [kPa].

VARIANTS:
By valve leakage class:
below 0.01%Kvs (class IV as per PN-EN 60534-4) - hard seat,
bubble (class VI as per PN-EN 60534-4) soft seat - PTFE or VMQ (ECOSIL).
By corrosion-proofness of actuator components:
standard (ZSN 8.1) carbon steel with protection coatings,
special (ZSN 8.2) stainless steel.
OPERATING PRINCIPLE:
Regulator valve is open when no supply. Regulator operation consists in measurement and control of permanent
pressure difference on the packing gland (12) of value preset by medium ow. Controlled pressure difference
is transferred to actuator via impulse ducts (115) +, (116) -, generates a force on actuator diaphragm (29)
corresponding to actual controlled value, compared on actuator stem (47) with spring tension force (42). With
change in ow rate, and consequential change in value of controlled pressure difference, force generate don
diaphragm shall move the stem (47) with attached plug (5) until spring (42) tension force is compensated. This
way ow rate is kept on constant level. Regulator does not require any additional impulse ducts. Total pressure
drop in valve comprises pressure drop on packing gland and on plug.

FLOW DIAGRAM FOR WATER

INSTALLATION
Regulator is to be installed on horizontal pipeline. Medium ow direction is to conform to arrow on body. At
medium temperature lower than 130C regulator position is optional, at higher temperatures it is recommended
to install regulator with adjuster unit (03) down. To ensure reliable operation of regulator apply strainer FS1
upstream.
